Hitler themed restaurant

There seems to be no limit on what people do to promote their ventures. We had pictures of Osama Bin Laden used in Bihar elections. We had a beach named after Saddam in Kerala. Now we have a Hitler themed restaurant:

A new restaurant in India’s financial hub, named after Adolf Hitler and promoted with posters showing the German leader and Nazi swastikas, has infuriated the country’s small Jewish community.Hitler’s Cross, which opened last week, serves up a wide range of continental fare and a big helping of controversy, thanks to a name the owners say they chose to stand out among hundreds of Mumbai eateries.“We wanted to be different. This is one name that will stay in people’s minds,” owner Punit Shablok told Reuters.
